The Captain Tom 100 Challenge
The Captain Tom 100 launches nationwide today and there has already been great media coverage. Philanthropy Company are proud to be working with The Captain Tom Foundation and his family to build on his wonderful legacy. Captain Tom’s simple message of hope inspired millions across the world and we want to do our bit in getting as many people to join in and ensure ‘tomorrow is a good day’!
Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday and the one-year anniversary of his famous 100 laps of his garden that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS. Captain Tom’s family have pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, can get involved in.
All you need to do is think up your 100 challenge and start fundraising. It can be anything you like – from walking 100 metres, baking 100 cakes or writing 100 letters!
Take on your 100 any time between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May.
Fundraise or donate to The Captain Tom Foundation. Share your 100 on social media using #CaptainTom100.
The Captain Tom Foundation will be using the activity around Captain Tom 100 to support charities including The Mix, Young Minds and Place2be who are doing incredible work supporting our young people’s mental health as we emerge from this crisis.
